How many of you have work that you Love, and how many are doing work that you would rather not do?
i'm an interior renovator and designer and i love what i do. i can't think of anything i would rather do except be wealthy enough to go around fixing up homes for people who can't afford to get the work done.
My answer to this question falls into both categories. I have one full-time job and I have been fortunate to have kept this job during the recession. I am grateful for the work, but the job has changed over the years. I have also changed and grown as an individual. These changes have caused me to think about my current level of job satisfaction. When I dwell on these changes, I begin to feel the pangs of frustration. Quitting this job is not an option for me right now, so I began to look for outside avenues that fitted my current interests. Now, I have a part-time teaching position at a local career college. This job reflects my true passion. And,I have also started an online shop on Etsy featuring my art and craft projects. These two part-time pursuits allow me to explore new opportunities. I think job satisfaction is what we make of it. I know of too many people that grumble and complain about their jobs, but they don't take any steps toward positive change.
No one grows up wanting to be an office manager, but that's how it happened for me. I was fortunate that people gave me chances, and I was able to prove myself. I enjoy my job, but I can't say I love it. I throw myself into it, but because I want to do a great job.
Writing, ironically, is what I love. I just don't don't get paid a lot for the writing I do.

Do you believe you can work AND love what you do every day?Are you doing what you love to do or is work a dreaded task? If it is a dreaded task, why do you continue to do it? Is it possible to work and love what you do? Is fulfilling work only a reality for a select percentage of the population?
